Istituto Auxologico Italiano - San Luca Hospital

Location: Milano – Piazzale Brescia
Client: Istituto Auxologico Italiano
Value: 35.000.000 €
Architect: RIMOND S.r.l.
Scope of Work: Project Planning, Architecture, Engineering and BIM
Schedule: May 2015 - May 2017
Status: Design Stage

Commissioned by Istituto Auxologico Italiano, the initiative involves designing the expansion and transformation of San Luca Hospital into a 20,000 sqm high-technology hospital complex.  More specifically, the project will integrate new functions and spaces including a high technology R&D laboratory, emergency ward, rehabilitation complex and 60 private rooms into the existing hospital. A further extension building composed of 9 floors with 4 underground floors, each 1,435 sqm, will connect the old and new hospital buildings.

The challenge is not just designing a new hospital building.  Issues of rehabilitation, reuse or optimization of existing buildings are the main principles of sustainable urban and global development.  The hospital’s renewal encompasses the long-term economic analysis of the structure, energy use and reduced maintenance costs, the protection of the existing hospital from environmental degradation, construction of the new complex, the selection of materials for their sustainability, quality, durability and energy conservation, minimizing waste and materials, the redesign of the infrastructure in light of global climate change and the remediation of environmentally-compromised soils and water. The clear sustainability of the hospital will be of direct socio-economic benefit to the City of Milan and we will apply responsible design to balance the social, economic and environmental issues.

The mainstay of our design and construction strategy is applying Building Information Modeling (BIM) to this highly complex hospital project. Using BIM will foster a more coordinated working environment for our design teams to reduce design conflicts, to produce more efficient designs, to optimize layouts, even under tight time constraints, and to align methods to achieve a more energy-efficient hospital.
